    Honeywell looks like Jarrod Parker 2.0. I doubt Chicago has much interest. Epstein isn’t Dan Duquette, who has a history of acquiring oft-injured pitchers on the cheap and occasionally resulting in successes (Ramon Martinez, Bret Saberhagen).

      Yeah, one clarification is that we downgraded Honeywell’s value a little bit more since his latest setback was reported, and since this trade was proposed.

      Unfortunately for him, it’s not looking great — his upside is now being dragged down by his continuous injury pattern.

    Yeah, as well as the Honeywell issue, I don’t really see any reason the Rays would trade for Ian Happ. They don’t really have any use for him, they have a ton of controllable utility type guys who are equally likely to break out, while also stacked with a ton of switch hitting utility guys like him in the high minors waiting for a chance
